A co-worker's mother gave me this gem of a recipe a few years back. I can never decide what's more appealing—the attractive look of the bars or their incredible aroma while they're baking! Everyone who tries these asks for the recipe. —Mimi Priesman Pace, Florida

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 7, 2014

"They sound good, but the serving size is unrealistic- 24 bars out of a 9" square pan? The gov't is requiring food companies to change labels to reflect accurate serving sizes; I hope that will be true for recipes that include that information as well."
